Thanks Keri. As you know, we just live here, swim with our dogs, paddle and enjoy life. Fully retired just like you, the new grandmother.

Thank you for that insult to our integrity. Says more than I ever wanted to know about you. Enjoy your vacation wherever you go. We hope you’ve been treated well here.

The town next to mine, in the U. S., has had four shootings in three weeks. I will be there tonight for dinner, however, I won't be there at three in the morning. In my 18 years coming to Zihuatanejo I have always felt safe in and out of town.
Rob is as honest as they come, it's hurtful that anyone would discredit him.

What gets me is that local reporters are threatened and killed here for reporting news like this, something that I recently mentioned here, yet a few readers had the nerve to insult me for not posting grisly photos and details or whatever it is they wanted.

So you expect Rob to post crap on here that might make him the next news story? Why don’t you start your own site, identity who and where you are and post what you believe is the truth that everyone needs to know.

It's a message board on a freakin' tourist site, for God's sake. If you want news, go to the news sites. Rob's job is to promote Zihuatanejo as a tourist destination, not to disseminate the local news.

Won't be much of a tourist destination if what happen on the beach happens more often, unless we can keep people from finding out about it.

What shame, in the USA you can report and print fake news and draw a paycheck. In Mexico you report and print the truth and you get assassinated.

Mass shootings haven't kept U.S. tourists from visiting any of the cities or destinations where those have occurred in the States. And my experience has been that U.S. propagandists actually do more harm to tourist destinations than anything that actually happens there. When I lived in the U.S. Virgin Islands there was a massacre at a local elite golf course where several tourists were killed. Took them over 10 years to get any real tourism to return. Locally I can count on one hand the foreigners that have met violent deaths here in the region of Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa in the past 30 years, yet the U.S. federal government forbids its employees from travelling here and suggests tourists don't even come here.

So why aren't El Paso and Las Vegas on the NO GO list?

This chart shows deaths and injuries by gun violence in te USA since Jan. 1st of this year. The major difference between gun violence in Mexico and the States is the much greater randomness of victims in the States than in Mexico. For decades Mexico has pleaded with the U.S. government to stop selling assault-type weapons, stop allowing straw buyers, fix the loopholes for gun shows and flea markets, and take the interdiction of firearms out of the USA more seriously. The response? NADA. A quarter million firearms a year continue flowing south without any difficulty whatsoever. The sources of those sales are easily identified. STILL NO HELP WHATSOEVER FROM THE STATE OR FEDERAL GOVERNMENTS. And of course what do citizens like you care, right? Doesn't affect you. Must be OUR problem.

So while there certainly are things Mexico can do, and it is endeavoring to do them while at the same time having to waste resources to avoid having your Racist-in-Chief apply harmful sanctions to our economy (Mexico just passed China as the USA's #1 trading partner), it's a two-way street that has yet to see reciprocation on the part of the U.S. federal government. Before you blame Obama and the Clintons, remember: none of them currently occupy the White House.

So says the fake person with the phony profile.

So delighted to see you make that stupid claim. Feel free to point out which of the shootings was phony. We'll wait. Or go and hide and deal with your cognitive dissonance. I really couldn't care less.
